    Now it seems these guys are getting bored with the "hardcore" games that most HD owners love. Lots of people say thats it's the casual thing but really these guys are getting super picky and bored.

    I know right. I hate to say it but some things are looking fadish and it's not the Wii. if it was not for HD graphics the other guys really would be dead in the water over there.

    The Japanese just don't like Microsoft too much, do they?
    That turtle has a brief case. It must be going to work. I hope it has a good day.

    The 360 is doing pretty bad in sales here too. The price drop for the 360 didn't include the hard drive. The other is most console gamers don't buy a console for online gaming. Each year that percentage will go down 5-10%. However right now I think it's at 70% stay offline? The PS2 crowd is still on the PS2, this will be the year they move to the next gen consoles (not all of them, but a good chunk). If Microsoft wants that crowd, they need to include the hard drive, XBL and price drop into one package or watch Sony do nothing but catch up this year.

    If MS wants that crowd then they need to make more gods or war and RPGs and arcade action games and less simulation games and FPS. Go to your local game stop and just look at the games you can buy there and realize the PS2 still has tons of games you haven't played yet. Most of these games are not even close to coming out on the 360. Realize that the Wii is blamed for killing the arcade. When was the last time you saw a game as slow as gears of war in the arcade? MS just doesn't understand the word arcade game because they never had the guts to try and making it in the arcade world. Thats the place where you truly learn how to addict a player and make them keep feeding money into a machine. Nintendo is doing this right now with a home console. MS can do this but the current batch of hardcore players don't really like arcade like games now do they. Case and point MS is a mis-match for that market and most PS2 gamers.

    Xbox has sold 17.7 million consoles, XBL has 10 million subscribers, thats more than 50% of the Xbox owners online...

    Also the 360 had bad sales in US these recent months because the demand was alot higher than the supply so their was a console shortage. Just like the Wii, but I don't think it was as bad. Hell where I live I can't find a Xbox 360 anywhere.
